Missing dll in windows build 0.87.4

I am trying to run Matplotlib 0.87.4 on WinXP after having installed from the binaries posted on sourceforge. Unfortunately, when I try importing from pylab, I get a popup declaring:

“This application has failed to start because MSVCP71.dll was not found.”

I usually work on Mac/Linux, so I have no idea what this means. Here is the traceback.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “”, line 1, in ?

from matplotlib._ns_transforms import *
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

I have tried building matplotlib myself using mingw32, but with no success. Any help is most appreciated.

This error used to come up with mingw and python2.4 builds, but now we
use Visual Studio for python2.4. I am surprised no one else has
reported this error though? I see you used the egg binary? Has
anyone else use the python2.4 windows egg with success.
